Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

Ok this only happened one time but it scared me enough that I never leave the car without my keys (yes lol I leave em in there sometimes) even for a second. I was at my local library for literally five seconds, as I came back to my car I realized that my doors were locked with my keys inside. I know for a fact that I didn't lock them and I had to walk down the road to find a phone to call my friend. She was on the other side of town so it took her 15-20 minutes to get there. Just as she pulled up I was standing by the car and the damn thing goes "click" and unlocks itself. I was like WTF!?!?! I thought I was crazy but it really did happen. It has never happened again but when/if it does ill be ready. Surprisingly enough, this isn't the first time Ive have this problem with a moms 2000 jeep did this too and it made her late for work and she blamed it on me...until a few days later I was driving and the locks started going crazy.
